Belinda and I had an warm response to our first foray into canvassing at Littlebury, where people were generally surprised and pleased to meet election candidates and to be able to air their views on such matters as housing provision, traffic control and school places. At one point I was accosted by a passing Neighbourhood Watch monitor, who rightly wanted to check what I was doing. When he heard I was an R4U candidate, he declared himself a strong supporter.
We had a good morning too helping clean up Wendens Ambo on the 14th, and were glad to meet and chat to some more interested residents there, and again at the Chrishall litter-pick on the 21st, when the refreshments were as good as promised. Thanks to John for the vegetarian bacon roll.
We also look forward to talking to the residents of Great Chesterford, and any others who may care to come, over a cup of tea or coffee at our open meeting from 10-2 on Saturday 28th, in the conservatory of the Crown House Hotel on Newmarket Road. Please come along and let us know what you think about our campaign and local issues.
